Baby Buttercup Moccasins from Soft Star Shoes {Giveaway - Ends 5/15}

Are your baby's shoes handmade? Since 1985, Soft Star Shoes has been handcrafting leather shoes from start to finish in their Corvallis, Oregon workshop. Their shoes are a minimalist's dream, and a crunchy mama's favorite baby shoe.


I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

I have Soft Star's Ballerine Flats (review here), which I LOVE, so naturally I'm excited to have a handmade pair of leather moccasins for my baby girl too.

Soft Star Shoes use leather that is formaldehyde-free and colored using using FDA-approved food grade dyes. Not only are their shoes made in the USA, but materials are also sourced here as well. Recycling and reusing are important environmental practices, further showing Soft Star's commitment to high standards for their business.


How sweet are these Baby Buttercup Moccasins? These are the softest baby shoes I've ever felt! The leather is gorgeously smooth and supple, they're completely squishable and they hardly weigh anything. With such a soft structure, they won't pose any harm growing feet and allow for natural foot movement and development. These are a size 2 which is the smallest size offered and fit age 0-6 months.

Genuine sheepskin lines the bottom innersoles of the moccasins for breathability and dry feet in warm weather, and warm insulation in cold weather. These moccasins were designed to offer breathability on the sides where the pink and lavender leather meet too. The two leather colors are only joined together where the elastic runs through on the back of pink leather behind the star motif.

What I'm really impressed with is that these stay on baby girl's feet despite being quite big in length still. The elastic is high up on the ankle and past the top of the foot, so they won't come off with normal baby movement. That's a major factor when you buy baby shoes, am I right?? Losing a single shoe is terribly frustrating.

Baby Buttercup Moccasins are available in a size 2 (0-6 months) or 3 (6-12 months). Soft Star recently changed their sizing label on these, so if you've ordered in the past you just need to know that the size 2 and 3 were previously their size 3 and 4. 

These moccasins are available in several color combinations, or you may choose to completely Design-Your-Own (DYO). Prices start at $30, which is very reasonable for such a high quality, handmade-in-the-USA moccasin. Since baby girl will be able to wear these for quite a while, this is very affordable and I'm super happy with these baby shoes!

I just bought my daughter the flamingo sandals and would love to get my own! I'm eyeing the ballerines or solstice sandals for summer.

I can'd decide. Seriously. I'm trying to choose a pair to ask for for my birthday (next week) from my husband and kiddos, and am dragging my feet b/c I want them all, in multiple colors! If I had to pick one, I'd love a pair of metros. Cute color combination on your baby moccasins!

Been buying Soft Star shoes for about 16 years.... I still have most of the baby moccs, saved them for grandchildren. My youngest is now 8, and she has 3 pairs of Soft Stars right now. My 11yo is desperate to grow into the adult size Dash because she wants a pair just like mine. My 13yo son still wears Soft Stars, and my husband finally just got his first pair last month. He always said he needed support and couldn't wear barefoot shoes, but I bought him a pair right before we left for Europe. He walked in them 8-12 miles a day on that trip and now he wants nothing but Soft Stars....

I would love to own a pair of ballerine flats with the sport straps. I don't have any Soft Star shoes yet.

My favorites are probably the Ballerines. I would like to try a pair for myself in a cream or pale tan color. Or maybe olive.
